Father's Day in the U.K.

Father's Day in the U.K.

I have tried to find out information about Father’s Day and material on Google which might prove useful. Father’s day in the U.K. falls on the third Sunday in June. The week before younger children are often given the opportunity to create a card - illustrations from two web sites showing 2D and 3D have been included. For the card they need to use positive phrases and words about their father. In my research I came across ‘15 Meaningful Father’s Messages’ which I thought would be useful. I have also included ‘How many words can you find in Father’s Day?’ with answers.

Bucket Filler 20 minute class assembly about kindness and caring based on the book by Carol McCloud

Bucket Filler 20 minute class assembly about kindness and caring based on the book by Carol McCloud

Did you know that everyone carries an invisible bucket that can be filled by doing kind things? This 20 minute assembly is based on the book ‘have you filled a bucket today?’ by Carol McCloud (an amazing book that I would recommend to any teacher). There are enough short speaking parts for a class of 30+ and the script is fully editable. Your children will introduce the concept of bucket filling and dipping to their audience. Through short drama pieces, they will demonstrate the benefits of bucket filling and the negative impact of bucket dipping. So, ask yourself, have you filled a bucket today?

Tattle Teddy Reflection Template Sheets Behavior Management Resource

Tattle Teddy Reflection Template Sheets Behavior Management Resource

We all know that sometimes our students just feel like they need to tell you everything. Sometimes it is not about who they say it to, but rather, that they say it and they know someone is listening. Many teachers have a Teddy Bear somewhere in the back of their classroom that they allow students to tattle to so they are heard but it doesn't interrupt the teachers flow. This form is a great way to take that conversation to the next level. Allowing students to write about their feelings, what happened, and how they are going to solve it, promotes leadership, independence, problem-solving skills as well as communication skills. This is a great way to take your class to the next level while maintaining your focus on instruction!
